September 19, 2013

ZURICH (AP) — Israeli and Palestinian football leaders will return to FIFA on Monday after first meeting earlier this month.

FIFA says the two football associations will follow up discussions about easing “the movement of persons and goods for football purposes in and out of and within Palestine.”

FIFA says the two federation presidents, Avi Luzon and Jibril Al Rajoub, will attend along with officials from UEFA and the Asian Football Confederation.

The Palestine federation has long-standing objections to travel restrictions imposed by Israeli security authorities affecting players and officials from its own and visiting teams.
